Amazing lunch

We went to Las Mercedes with a group of eight people for a long business lunch. As always the service and the food were great. We ordered two of each appetizer and every one of them was exceptional. We then each ordered our own entrée. We ended up sampling everything on the menu except one of the... read more

After checking the reviews I had very high expectations. When we went there without a reservation and had to postpone for the day after my expectations went even higher. Truth is... they met them. I'm not afraid to say this is one of the best restaurants I've been to in my life! Every now and then you get to meet... More

An out of the way gastronomic experience well worth the $2 taxi cab ride. Our server, Christian was as welcoming and charming as ever--his love and passion for the rich traditions and flavors of Mexican cuisine was contagious. So there we are in a beautiful warm house with six candlelit tables and POW were we transported back in time to... More

On a hillside in a residential district lies Las Mercedes. It's situated in house overlooking the town below surrounded by mountain vistas. The menu is all in Spanish, but the staff is mostly bilingual. The food is amazing and flavorful utilizing the freshest Mexican ingredients and includes specialities including a few I'll leave as a surprise. Also the tequilla, mescal... More

Las Mercedes is a small off the main track gourmet restaurant in Guanajuato. Every dish is unique and Guanajuato wine is availiable. Try "Cuna de Tierra," a world class red wine. All dished use Mexican ingredients prepared for the most demanding palates. Escamoles, xoconostle, mezcal and blue fin tuna are highly recommended .

The service was phenomenal and the exotic dishes like Mexican caviar(escamoles) and the Chile Ancho relleno and the braised chicken in green mole with pistachio oil were an explosion of... More

This is a small restaurant, with no big signs outside, in a small non-crowded street. Once you climb the entrance stairs you find yourself in a small lobby from where you can see some of the tables. The tables total maybe 8-9 tables. The waiters are extra-attentive, and explain carefully each of the menu options. The food is Mexican cuisine,... More

Gracious host. Impeccable, attentive service. Impressive interpretations of true authentic Mexican Cuisine. And they know and are so proud of their mezcal. Such a treat!

We took a friend there as a thank you. Made most welcome and service excellent. Food tasted very good but some of the textures were not to my taste.
